The death threat is only the beginning…because the letter isn’t a hoax. Z walks out of his office into a barrage of bullets. He can take being shot at, bu...more
Mako had been a master of war, but he’d known love was the strongest force in the universe.
Defiance was essentially a transition novella that introduces four brand new characters that will launch a new series from the queen of BDSM. It really had the perfect combination of things; a visit to one of my favorite Shadowlands couples, Master Z and his kitten, a cameo by one of my favorite sadists, deVries, and a suspenseful plot that introduces 4 intriguing new characters in a bra ...more
We get to peek into Zachary and Jessica’s lives with their little girl, meet briefly with DeVries (from Dark Haven series) and 3 of the 4 brothers from the new series as Master ...more
It doesn't make me happy to say that this barely scraped to a three star, AND IT HAS MASTER Z!
This is a transition novel using the eloquent, masterful, savvy, sexy...I'm going to stop now...Master Z, the sub Whisperer, from the Shadowlands series. Master Z and cute Jessica, but the effort was phoned in.
Had to laugh when their 18 month old daughter runs around naked after her bath. I guess the apple doesn't fall far ...more
This is more a treat for the long-time readers and a way to whet our appetites for this new endeavor. I'm actually quite curious to see how Ms. Sinclair will handle a non-BD ...more
Defiance by Cherise Sinclair was a mesmerizing erotic novella with an emotional payoff like no other. Fans of the incredible Masters of the Shadowlands series will be absolutely THRILLED with diving back into Master Z and Jessica’s life. Like many other fans, this couple will forever be a favorite of mine, and I was glad that Ms. Sinclair chose them to bridge the gap to a brand-spankin’ new series! I’m so eager and excited for what’s to come!
DEFIANCE is a novella set in the Masters of the Shadowlands world. It’s about Z and Jessica, one of the most important couples that we have previously seen in the series. What’s interesting about this novella and I think makes it worth picking up is the fact that it’s a transition book for Sinclair’s new series, which will be set in Alaska.
Another reason to check out this book is the fact that although it’s just a novella, it handles some pretty heavy stuff. That’s one of the things I love ...more
So this one was not too ba ...more
Catching up with Z and Jessica was great,even if there was a threat hanging over Z’s head. More to the point,someone was out for his life. And when his good friend Mako dies,leaving his 4 sons behind,he decides to take that threat with him to Alaska,where the funeral will be. He orders Jessica to stay at her pa ...more
What a way to introduce a new series! Cherise Sinclair is starting a new group of books about four young men raised as brothers -and to let readers get to know them, she sends Master Z, the owner of the Shadowlands, to Alaska to arrange for their adopted father’s funeral.
But Zachary Grayson, aka Master Z, is dealing with his own problems-someone wants him dead. And for once, Z’s smooth approach to life is ruffled because he doesn’t want to frighten his wife, Jessica, with the truth. But Jessica ...more
I hate to write this review, because Cherise Sinclair is one of my three favourite authors. I was really excited when I opened this months newsletter and found out this book was out, since there had been no previous clues about us getting another Shadowlands book yet, so I immediately snapped it up and read it in a few hours, since it is only short. However, I personally felt like this book was missing something. The writi ...more
Cherise Sinclair never fails to deliver a rainbow of emotions. This book almost ends the series as it started... with the hero every woman wishes to have in real life... Master Z. But every woman can relate to the heroine, Jessica. But it goes further. Plot and writing style just do it for me. Shadowlands is about Dons and submissives but what makes it special to me is that heroes are not alpha assholes like I generally read elsewhere. Cherise S ...more

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
YES!! This book was a great sneak peak at one of my favorite Shadowlands couples. Getting to hang with Master Z, Jessica and baby Sophia was the best. It made me remember why I fell in love with this series to begin with!!!
Master Z is so happy ...more
So what makes it so extraordinary? Well Zachary Grayson is the main character and the book does not take place in the Shadowlands. We get to see Master Z in his real life job, dealing with real life problems including having a stalker who wants him dead and an old friend who is dying who asks him for a final request. One of those things has him breaking a promise he and his wife Jessica made when they mar ...more
Very quick read revisiting Master Z and Jessica while introducing the characters of a new series to come.
If I liked the cameo and found the new protagonists interesting the suspense plot kind of fell flat.
Short but so good, filled with love, action and great characters.
The storyline is good building up nicely and ends slowly, just how I like it to be.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
Love scenes is hot but also sweet
I must say Sinclair has a way of teasing us with new characters that will have their own story. Can’t wait for the brothers to find their happy ever after.
Excellent afternoon read that you don’t want to put down.
5 stars 🌟
In addition, we get a peek of a new series about four brothers who are alpha, protective and dominant. I seriously cannot wait for this.
Another author who is giving me a reason to visit Alaska.

As Z is leaving work he is handed his mail and learns he has a death threat. It reads as serious. When he goes to leave intent to stop by the station house to inform them shots ring out, his window shield hit, he is hit. What really throws him is one bullet hit his daughter's car seat. Making things to real. The what ifs?
Once finally home he is about to talk ...more

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. Bu ...more
